    The Merry Hempsters are dedicated to promoting the extraordinary benefits of hemp seed oil (Cannabis sativa) through the production of uniquely effective and environmentally friendly vegan and organic hemp skin care products. We use only the finest quality natural ingredients in combination with cutting edge eco-friendly packaging. Core concepts of our mission are to produce effective hemp lip balms, salves, lotions and rubs, in concert with the environmental sustainability of our ingredients and packaging. This May will be our 20th year in business making us one of the if not oldest hemp companies in the U.S.

    Merry HempphilosophyheadWe strive to be responsible for the entire life span of all of our products from start to finish. Environmental sustainability, from the creation of the lip balm tubing we use (including all who take part in its creation) to the disposal of that tubing, is of utmost concern. We use only tree-free paper produced from hemp stock, soy based inks, and post-consumer recycled content in our correspondence and packaging. Our ultimate goal is to one day use only tree-free hemp stock for all our paper and packaging needs.

    mhface_red_logo

    All of our products feature Canadian Certified Organic Hemp Seed Oil as a primary base. Our lip balms, salves and rubs are all unique in their healing properties and intended use. Anyone interested in regaining or maintaining health through natural products has probably heard about the benefits of hemp and if you haven’t then we would like to share that information with you. Because of the genuine benefits of hemp seed oil and a growing awareness of the importance of sustainability, we have an established presence in the U.S and Canadian marketplace. We have been in business since 1994. Each year we show an increase in market exposure, not just because hemp has good marketing appeal, but because it really works! Hemp is nutritious, sustainable and versatile. It’s truly good for the body, mind and soul. For more details on hemp, visit our Hemp Info section.

    Recreator Get your Own Hemp T

    After years of groundwork, our team came together in Los Angeles to bring superior hemp goods to market. Launching out with graphic T-shirts lays the foundation for an American hemp lifestyle brand.

    Everyone wants a 100% HEMP T-SHIRT. Here’s why:

    This specialty knit is light and drapes around your body. It is more durable than most T-shirts you’ve worn but almost feels like silk.

    Elishewa Shalom, of Natureflections and Artisan Hemp

    Elishewa Shalom, of Natureflections and Artisan Hemp

    Artisan Hemp Paper Project

    Intention is to heal Earth by growing the hemp paper industry. First step – Research and develop hemp fiber processing for paper artisan hempmaking and product development.

    Background:

    • My name is Elishewa Shalom.

      • I became passionate about hemp after discovering the book “The Emperor Wears No Clothes”, by Jack Herrer when I was in high school.

      • In 2005, I was taking many nature photographs and upon the positive reactions to family and friends, began making photo greeting cards and selling the cards locally.

      • I switched to using hemp paper for the cards, merging my passions for hemp and business – seeing the company as a vehicle for activism to promote environmental change.

      • In 2012, out of frustration due to extremely limited sources of hemp paper available amidst an abundance of information on its benefits, I began renting studio time and instruction at a local art studio to learn about hemp paper making.

      • Guest lecturer on Hemp Paper at Oregon State University College of Forestry WSE 266 Industrial Hemp course.

    What We Need & What You Get:

    Handmade Artisan Hemp Paper

    Handmade Artisan Hemp Paper

    Here is what the money will go towards:

    • Supplies – Hemp Fibers, paper making materials such as felts, molds/ deckles.

    • Studio Time and classes – I rent a studio hourly. Processing fibers into pulp takes at least 6 hours total. Sheet forming is very time consuming as well – I like to think of it as a meditation.

    • Greeting Cards printing, including new designs.

    • I will take scrupulous notes and write a book all about hemp paper making.

    • Natureflections greeting cards feature nature’s healing beauty. They are blank inside and can be used for any occasion. They are wonderful to send to family and friends for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, valentine’s Mothers Day, Father’s Day and every day, or to frame and hang on a wall or prop on an altar. The healing colors and vibrations of nature is a great way to lift anyone’s spirits. The images are inspirational and a reminder that life is beautiful. Original limited edition print will feature a surprise image related to cannabis and will be printed with a hand-press, a beautiful old-school technique.

    • If I don’t reach my entire goal, I will use the funds only for hemp fibers and studio time and not invest in new molds/deckles, felts, or card printing and use cards that are already in stock to fulfill orders. (New molds and deckles will help make higher quality paper and various sizes and shapes.)

    • If over $10k is raised, I will make even more hemp paper! The goal is to do this full time. If more than $50k is raised, I will begin building a hemp paper making studio. Right now, I rent and have to work around studio hours, classes, and other renters.  I would love to work all day and night. Also, the beater and equipment is shared and used for various fibers- many other artists use dyes and fixers too, which sometimes rub off on my paper, making it difficult to produce purely natural paper. I also intend to experiment with natural plant dyes to make colored paper. Also will invest in automatic production by procuring or building a fourdrinier type belt style machine to be able to produce larger quantities of paper that are of consistent quality.

    The Impact

    As America prepares for the reincarnation of its hemp industry, we need to setup hemp fiber processing facilities. I believe that researching and working with hemp on a small scale will prove invaluable when it is time to establish large scale hemp paper

    production.

    • Hemp is much better for the environment than tree paper – Hemp cleans the air, earth, and water as it grows. It can be recycled 7-8 times and is archival!

    • Hemp does not require toxic chemicals for pulping, unlike timber which uses dioxins to remove lignins for pulping (which is a reason why the paper industry is one of the largest causes of water pollution on the planet.)

    • Hemp can be grown for seed and the stalk made into paper – a very efficient way to utilize precious farmland. Hemp also does not require much water and can grow very easily.

    • There are so many reasons to support hemp!

    • We are all connected – All One! Let’s work together to heal the planet and create a sustainable new Earth for future generations.

They found that composite papers or papers covered by nanofibers of hemp kraft pulp had improved physical and chemical properties than composite papers or papers covered by nanofibers of commercially-produced coniferous kraft pulp. The project indicated that, using hemp kraft pulp as a non-lignin ligno-celluloid plant as raw material, and using less than 400kWh electricity, celluloid nanofibers would be produced mechanically. The current cost of production of celluloid nanofibers from this pulp falls to less than $ 6.5 per kilogram of the nanofiber (Posted by Parvez Jabri).”

    Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps was created as a medium for spreading Emanuel Bronner’s philosophy for uniting the human race. The company continues to be a vehicle for spreading progressive values to this day. From creating videos about our activist projects to generating earned media in major media outlets, Dr. Bronner’s uses a variety of mediums for sharing our story and our vision for a better world.

    Here is a great video of David Bronner standing up for the rights of American Farmers to cultivate industrial hemp.

    All-One

    All-One

    The Bronner family is committed to helping transition our major industries away from polluting, unsustainable materials and methods to cleaner, more sustainable ones. Hemp’s excellent fiber can replace virgin timber pulp in paper, glass fibers in construction and automotive composites, and pesticide-intensive cotton in textiles. Because of its huge market potential and high biomass/cellulose content, hemp is an ideal future crop for producing bio-ethanol and bio-plastics. However, the U.S. government, alone among the major industrialized nations, effectively prohibits domestic hemp cultivation — due primarily to “reefer madness” and confusion regarding hemp’s psychoactive cousin, “marijuana.”

    Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive varieties of the Cannabis plant grown for fiber and seed. Hemp has a remarkable number of beneficial uses, and we support its application in agriculture, manufacturing and trade. Dr. Bronner’s uses hemp oil as a superfatting ingredient in all our soaps because of its unsurpassed essential fatty acid (EFA) content. Hemp oil makes our soap lather smoother and less drying, and it is an excellent moisturizer in our lotions and balms.

    david bronnersIn 2001, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) under the Bush administration attempted to destroy the revitalized U.S. hemp industry, issuing regulations purporting to interpret existing law and declaring hemp illegal, and seized shipments of hemp seed and oil at the Canadian border. Dr. Bronner’s funded and helped coordinate the hemp industry’s protracted and ultimately successful litigation with the DEA, which culminated in a clean defeat of the new DEA regulations on February 6, 2004 in the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. David Bronner serves on the Vote Hemp Board of Directors and is involved with the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) where he currently serves on the Board of Advisors and as Chair of the Food & Oil Committee.

    The Bronner family is supporting Vote Hemp and the HIA’s legal, media, grassroots and lobbying efforts to re-commercialize industrial hemp in the U.S. Dr. Bronner’s is also the founding sponsor of Hemp History Week, an annual campaign launched in May of 2010. Hemp History Week is the largest national grassroots marketing and public education effort created to renew strong support for hemp farming in the U.S. and raise awareness about the benefits of a hemp economy.

    The Hemp Heals Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization created by former Philadelphia Flyer tough guy Riley cote hhfest Cote. Riley’s quest is to help teach people the power of nutrition and sustainable lifestyles. Focusing on the prevention of disease and attaining optimum health. The misunderstood Cannabis hemp plant is in fact the most useful plant that grows on this planet. A renewable resource that has been used across the globe for thousands of years. Whole foods such as hemp foods possess an array of nutrients, vitamins and minerals which are powerful healing properties that keep body balanced on a cellular level. Hemp is much more than a nutritional powerhouse, it’s the world’s most perfect plant.

     

    HEMP is a distinct variety of the Cannabis sativa plants with thousands of eco-friendly uses including food, fuel, fiber, paper and hemp heals medicine that could help save the economy.  Eating a diet of nutrient rich superfoods like hemp help heal the body, and aid in the prevention of disease. Adding these healing foods to your diet will fuel your body with high amounts of EFA’s (Essential Fatty Acids or Omegas), which have many anti-inflammatory properties. Hemp is also a good source of highly digestible protein and dietary fiber.  Adding more superfoods to your diet will enhance the quality of life for all people. Prevention of disease is often overlooked due to the lack of education on the subject.
